I hate writers block. This one was somewhat self imposed though. I looked back over my past entries and found that I didn't really have much to say that wasn't there already, so I decided not to post for a bit to see if I could spend some time coming up with exciting or interesting things to write. I've discovered that I'm a fairly boring person... Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my life and I have quite a few different things that I'm interested in, it's just that I don't do a lot that I feel would be interesting to others. But, given what I've seen in other blogs making their way through the aether that's not really the point. The point seems to be to tell your story no matter how boring or uninteresting you might think it is, because someone out there will probably find something that you never even thought to look for. Maybe they will even let you know about it and allow you to realize that your life isn't just marking time until you die and allow you a greater appreciation for some of the small things that make you a wonderful person. Of course the flip side is that someone might point out to you just how shallow and uninspiring the things that you do take pride in are. Either way, just write something, and even if nobody else ever sees it you will at least have one more activity that you can feel some sense of accomplishment for.
So, had a few interesting commutes over the past week. Despite their best efforts the cagers have yet to succeed in killing me. At one point I almost had a core sample of my head taken by a pipe sticking off the back of a truck... Weather has been rather amazing with all of the storms coming through and temps getting up to the 90s. It's kind of strange really, the same people that will drive 80MPH through a blizzard with a foot of snow already on the ground won't go more than 20MPH once that first drop of rain hits the windshield. The duality can be rather aggravating at times. Also had an interesting couple of days at work escorting a technician. He didn't really know what the heck he was doing and I ended up teaching him a lot about his job. The routine is becoming more so every day.
It's odd how rapidly one can fall into a routine. Here I am, not yet a month into my new job, and I'm already used to it. There are still a few surprises here and there and I'm still building relationships with coworkers, but the pace of change and discovery is already slacking off. Now would probably be a good time to start working on getting a few of those certifications that will help me get a better job down the line.
